Look at What Indians Did to Their Idols After Allegations of Failure to Protect Them From Covid-19

India is being overwhelmed by a record-breaking wave of COVID-19 cases, with deaths keeping some crematoriums running 24 hours a day and hospitals running out of oxygen.

Oxygen supplies remain critically low across the country, with the black market the only option for some people.

The virus is spreading faster than ever before in India despite previous high infection rates in megacities, which should have conferred some protection.

The Indian people are known to have a unique culture which include worshiping many private idol gods which are mostly familial or personal. They pray for these gods in times of trouble and in times of happiness. A shared video online showed Indian in the streets sacrificing their gods and throwing them on the streets for failing to protect them against Covid-19. Others were spotted throwing the gods into rivers to dispose them.

Evidence is growing that one variant first detected in India might be more transmissible and slightly better at evading immunity than existing variants. Animal models also hint that it might be able to cause more severe disease. 

Severe oxygen shortage one of many challenges as India suffers the world’s worst surge of COVID-19 cases and deaths.

On social media and in television footage, desperate relatives plead for oxygen outside hospitals or weep in the street for loved ones who died waiting for treatment.

India has been setting global daily records of new coronavirus infections, spurred by an insidious new variant that emerged here.

To some people, the situation in India is like a horror movie. Crematoriums in a number of parts in India have been working non-stop in the last few days. Making the matter worse, Covid patients are dying at home because the hospitals are fully occupied. Experts also fear that the reported deaths due to Covid 19 cases are low compared to the actual deaths. They also estimate that there could be more than 500 million cases of Corona Virus in India.
